Hernani Alves and Turbo Shine have a deep desire to give back to the local community. Both have partnered with the Ticket to Dream Foundation to help improve the lives of foster youth in California. Your donation will support Ticket to Dream's GoPlay!, Take Flight, & Confidence Caddy programs.

  • GoPlay! brings normal childhood experiences to foster youth across the nation. Its goal is to widen horizons, teach important life skills and bring joy through access to extra-curricular activities and experiences.
  • Take Flight provides much needed access to technology, educational support to increase graduation rate, teaches valuable life and job skills, and help reduce homelessness among youth aging out of foster care.
  • Confidence Caddy's are hygiene kits provided to youth upon entry into care. Often times, a child is brought into foster care with only the clothes on their backs and no comfort items. The Confidence Caddy provides age-appropriate hygiene and comfort items in a reusable tote for youth to keep as their own.

About Ticket to Dream:

At the Ticket to Dream Foundation, a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization, we are dedicated to creating hope and opportunity for foster children across the nation, so they can just be kids. To us, hope starts with having shoes and clothing that fit, lifting their self-esteem. School supplies and access to computers so they have the tools they need to succeed in school. Getting to experience the joy of a gift under the tree, a trip to the zoo or joining a sports team. It's ensuring they have vital services and support that allow them to heal and grow to reach their full potential. We want foster children across the country to thrive, but we can't do it alone – we need your help.
